the deficit? paul ryan says no. >> at least budgets are passing around here for a change. the government's going to have to learn to do more with less, it's not the government's money, it's the people's money. >> the senate democrats are considering a number of balances ever-- >> and house committee chair paul ryan telling us republicans and democrats are still world's apart. well, that is an understatement. we saw that just an hour ago. the democratic-led senate defeating the ryan house budget 40-59. so is there any hope left? here is congressman paul ryan. >> great to see you. >> great it to see you again. >> greta: i want to talk about the budget that passed today, i imagine you're happy. >> we're very happy. we passed a balanced budget and it's important we owe the country a reasonable plan and grows the economy. balancing the budget is not just a statistical exercise it's the necessary means to a healthier economy, it creates more jobs and helps people keep more of hard earned money and a contrast to the other budgets that are passing. at least budgets are passing here for a change,
contracts between two people student and the company. if they both agree what business is it of government to interfere? >> the same law that protects interns is also the one that got 14-year-olds out of the coal mines? was that freedom of contract? there has to come a point where you have to understand what are the -- >> coal mines, 14-year-olds? >> this is the 21st century. >> i don't see what century matters. if you volunteer to go to the coal mines and your parents are okay isn't that part of freedom. >> i grew up as less liberal. i have become a libertarian democrat. there are about 6 of us libertarian democrats. i used to be the press secretary for the democratic party. i understand the argument how we are exploiting workers of the world and they need to unite and have the backing of the government have the government demand john pay his interns. but why? these people are not so stupid they cannot decide whether they are being exploited or not. it is a kong tract written or otherwise understood and we should not use the course of power to the state to demand you pay your intern. >> t
. cruze says his dad made it on his own without government assistance. he worked hard and provide for his family and now his son has achieved the american dream. that's the way this country is supposed to work. but president obama himself has a very compelling story to tell. his father abandoned him. he was raised primarily by his maternal grandparents in hawaii. he had few resources. yet, barack obama rose up to become the most powerful man in the world, a stunning achievement. how much the system helped mr. obama is unknown as his college records have been kept private. we don't know the extent of affirmative action. we don't know how much the government subsidized his climb to the top. it would be very helpful to have that information simply to be fair to the president and his vision there is no president obama believes his discuss is is due to government that goes to the famous line "you didn't build that." so the battle lines are now drawn between senator cruise who believes in the free market and small government and president obama who wants the government partially regulate the ec
and local government have absolutely been desmated by rising healthcare costs, rising pension benefits they're paying out to retirees. this is the last strom they're paying what is left for snow removal, and they may have to ask for more money. the only silver lininges it forces families to stay home. have that dinner table conversation they might rather not have. they're all stuck in a dark room and can't use electronics. so there's so positives. >> neil: there is that. i'm wondering, this whole first quarter of the year has been buffetted by one storm after another and i'm wondering how it's going to affect the overall economy in terms of gdp and big data we get. will it be slower or is the boom you generally get after something like this make up for it? >> well, again, we still have the head wind from the rise in the payroll tax, which is absolutely affecting consumers. also, gdp will be faked. corporate earnings will be affected be the rising dollar and slow european recovery, if there is a recovery. and when we look at the storms, many in the northeast have fallen othe weekends, the ti
get it. there is new government job out there one agency is creating. pays six figures a year. might check it out despite the punishing budge jubt cuts we're hearing about. bill: benghazi six months later. the six simple questions one lawmaker that the believes the administration is dodging. >> the fact we have four dead americans. was it a protest or guys out for a walk decided they would go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? usual breakfast sandwich. a lot more flavor. [ anouncer ] ihop's new griddle melts... made fresh and hot! hand crafted just for you. it's like a sexy sandwich. [ anouncer ] compare new griddle melts yourself. just $4. it's like a sexy sandwich. it's an epic breakfast sandwich. martha: crews are now cleaning up the scene of that deadly plane crash that happened in the south bend, indiana. a crain is removing huge chunks of the private jet that crashed into a home on sunday. it took the lives of two people that crash, including the pilot of the plane and his friend, former oklahoma quarterback steve davis, who led the sooners to nati
in limited government and more individual liberty. >> sean: well, then that raises the question when you look at, say, paul ryan's budget versus the democrats they never get into balance. paul ryan saying he can balance it in ten years and increase spending, growth, 3.4% a year. is that conservative enough for you? >> well, we're tugging him in the right direction. last year, you know, my budget balanced in five years. mike lee had a budget that balanced in five years and paul ryan's budget was 28 years to get to balance. this year it's in ten so i think he's coming in the right direction. now, he does things a little bit different and i'm not saying i'm that critical. he tries to bend the curve of spending to slow down the rate of growth. what i say certain things shouldn't be done in washington. department of education i'd send it back to the states. that's what reagan said, what the republican party said. i'm one of the few who would dismantle some of the big bad things in washington and just say, that should remain with the states and the people. that's the only way you'll ever shrink the
government can come in and take your guns away. that's what the debate will be. >> governor dean, as someone that had a strong rating from the nra, i want to point to some of the reaction comes from senators who are probably going to have a hard time on the vote on this bill. mark pryor says in a statement, with i don't take gun advice from the mayor of new york city. i listen to arkansans. there's a little bit more room in the statement from senator mary landrieu. senator landrieu has a great deal of respect for mayor bloomberg on a great deal issues, but the senator will be listening closely to her constituents on this issue. you hear that and look at the poll, it is overwhelmingly supported by 91% of this country. some form of universal background check. why then is it so hard for our political class to catch up with that, governor? >> this is about guns and power -- excuse me, this is about money and power. this is not about guns. what the nra is doing, you played the clip. look, i ran for office eight times, statewide in vermont. i got an "a" from the nra every single time. why? because
they haven't attacked anybody and we are going to depend on that government. >> sean: so obama-- >> whether we like that government or not to have have peace and protect israel. >> sean: the president won't speak underneath the cross at georgetown and speak under you acknowledge a terrorist yasser arafat. what if he spoke under a picture of bin laden. is there any difference between bin laden and yasser arafat. >> you go to -- we're trying to create peace somewhere. >> sean: it would be okay with you. meeting with the leader-- >> apparently. >> sean, you have to have -- yeah, it's all right, sean, no. >> sean: and billy cunningham last work. >> you cannot pick who you're meeting with. >> sean: yeah, i can, i would. >> sean hannity, yasser arafat gave birth to osama bin laden. in the '70s and '80s he was the site of more terrorism in the islamic world arafat. and to have our president underneath a terrorist like that. crucifixes are bad, terrorists okay with obama. >> sean: and rudy guiliani is here to react to what's going on and the decision by obama to give a presser under this image of a
of the party right now is that it is anti-tax and once big cuts in the size of government. and that has not changed. and through the whole budget wars we've been seeing, the sequester, i think this came up the last time i was here. the economic conservatives, the low tax, small government conservatives have established their supremacy. they have beaten out the national security hawks who didn't want to see cuts to defense. i think this is an example where they're beating the social conservatives who aren't ready for a shift in gay marriage. opposition within the party to gay marriage is substantial and they don't want a more liberalized immigration policy. so the one thing that is still here is low taxes, including on the wealthy, and deep cuts to government. i think that is a fundamental problem for the party. it cause them problems with all kinds of groups. there is only so much you can do when you change the language as long as you hold on to the tax and spending cuts policies. >> you touched on immigration policy. i think lawmakers in washington on the republican side see it as esse
by himself. he must have gotten government-backed school loans, former public assistance and let's not derail the good i built it without help story. carson say brilliant medical thinker, but he has intellectual tumors in his mind like a flat tax which is regressive and ignorant wealth inexquality where the bottom 60% own 2.3%. i doubt jesus would tax them equally just as i doubt the gop would entertain a none-white politician with unserious ideas, but carson is enjoying the gop's version of affirmative action where black faces that can spit conservative game get raced to the front of the line because then people get to put a bumper sticker on their cars saying how can i be racist? i would have voted for cars be on which would fit nicely over the bumper sticker that said how can i be racist? i would have voted for cain. no matter how far from the political system they emerge from and no matter how unserious their ideas are because it's all make believe. none of them will ever get a nomination for the presidency just as the gop will never get black votes because the only thing they care about
pressure being exerted by the u.s. on the iraqi government to halt that type of aid, just as the supporters of the opposition, including saudi arabia, turkey and qatar are reportedly sending more weapons and money to the rebels. chris? >> ayman, thank you. more than 70,000 dead since the start of the conflict. remarkable. thanks for your reporting. >>> and for more on the secretary's middle east trip, i'm joined by nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, traveling with secretary kerry and was able to give us this report by phone from afghanistan. >> reporter: chris, this is secretary kerry's sixth trip to afghanistan in the last couple years. but his first as secretary. and he's got a good relationship with hamid karzai, the very eccentric president of afghanistan. and this is a mission here. the question is, is he going to play good cop or bad cop today. given the fact that karzai was so difficult the last time he visited with a top american, which was chuck hagel, of course, defense secretary. kerry has such a good relationship, he's going to try to smooth things over.
that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria. we want to go to our senior international correspondent ivan watson in amman, jordan, this morning. and iv
this will be perceived and that's something that our executives, and whether they're in the regular federal government or the postal service, has to take note of. that the public is watching and that they are turned off by seeing waste of taxpayer dollars or in this case, sosh service dollars. >> attendees see it another way. >> relationships and networking very important. if they just stand in their office in washington they wouldn't get the feel of what the mailers want and need in the industry because the industry's changing. technology is changing and the postal service is changing with it. >> reporter: again, the u.s. postal service spending more than 2 million dollars on exhibit space and travel expenses. that may not sound like a lot, but as one government watch dog group told me, the way you end up 16 billion dollars in debt you don't worry about a 2 million dollar expenditure. over time, harris, it all adds up. >> harris: indeed it does. thank you. and republican lawmakers stepping up calls to hear from the the survivors of the benghazi terror attacks, six months after that assault there are
anti-government views. a lead investigator says a motive for the shooting may never be known. >>> now to washington, d.c., where the house of representatives passed legislation today to keep the government funded through the end of september. that bill now goes to the president to be signed into law, averting a possible government shut down. also, one day after rejecting a spending plan for the senate for next year, republicans in the house passed their own budget plan put together by congressman paul ryan of wisconsin. that plan would cut spending, defund the president's healthcare plan, and privatize medicare. >> repealing obama care means more jobs and lower healthcare costs for the american people. >> the first vote was about substance. the second was about keeping government open. we want to remove all doubt, that for whatever our disagreement on some of these bills, it was worth it. >> it leaves in place $85 billion in cuts to the pentagon and domestic programs. >>> new at 10:00, a series of concerted needed to raise money for the america's cup is raising concerns among those wh
they discussed, but there are lots of things on the plate of the new pope who has to deal with governance within the vatican, its finances, all the challenges facing the church. it was a historic first. it's never been seen before that two popes both dressed in white, prayed together, ate together and spent quality time together. >> oh my goodness, so what maybe next for pope benedict? or not pope benedict, for pope francis. >> reporter: the pope emeritus, looking at the pictures, he looks quite frail. he said he wants to be hidden from the world. we understand that some time within the next month, he'll be moving to a converted monastery on the grounds of the vatican, but he's a studious man. he's not interested in having an active public life. he's made that quite clear. so our understanding is it will be sort of a life of contemplation, study and writing in the back gardens of the vatican. not a bad place to spend your retirement. >> not bad at all. ben wedeman, thanks so much from rome. >>> earlier today the u.s. senate passed its version of the federal budget. it's mostly symbolic since it
on in iraq now is the shia plurality, dominating a government and trying to dominate the kurds and the sunnis. i think it is more a continuing ethnic struggle where iraq's neighbors wish them no good. the iranians supporting the shia, the sunni arabs supporting anb anbar provinces. >> the "washington post" describeding him as neither the failed state, nor the model democracy some had wanted. what is the state of the government right now from your perspective there? >> reporter: well, there is a few different tests. on one hand, it is a country that hasn't completely grappled with democracy. it hasn't struggled in materials of creating more political freedom but there is no doubt democracy has not taken route across the country. the central government still struggles in the northern part of the country under kurdish control. it is a loose amalf. the government is rife with political corruption. there is indeed as we just heard, sectarian tension among political parties. still a lot of missing people in iraq. so by some estimates, although there is more political freedom and freedom of expressi
got that one wrong as well saying it was a responsibility. that it's not the government that should be in your lives making sure there is shelter over your head, making sure you have food on the table, medicine to keep you well and health care essentially. she says this is the american dream that i believe in. that's what i've been trying to teach my kids and this test is going against it. >>brian: it was on facebook and now has become a huge story. an update on that fox news alert. a shooting in quantico, virginia, where a suspected shooter killed two marines and then killed himself. sherry ly joins us live with the details. when did this happen? >> this happened at 11:00 last night at the officer candidate school. we're told that the gunman and the two victims were all active-duty marines. it started at that officer candidate school. one person was shot dead. according to a base spokesman at quantico, the gunman headed to a barracks, barricaded himself inside. military police as well as law enforcement were called in. a special reaction team went into the barracks where they found
brotherhood government in control and we misread the arab spring and the muslim brotherhood said they wouldn't run someone for president and they did. we've seen hamas stronger as well as hezbollah, islamic jihad. and we've seen incredibly unstable situation in syria. when i was there on a congressional visit and we sat down with president netanyahu, one thing he asked, he was concerned about iran and the dominance and occurred and we have the iranian guard in syria. and their march toward having the nuclear device so they can have dominance. >> sean: that's all true and it's gotten worse, leslie, after the suck up to the world apology tour. and king be abdullah, jordan, says it's naive, that the muslim brotherhood are wolves in sheep's clothing, risky for him. and this president is giving 1.5 billion dollars, and f-16 jets and tanks it a guy that views the israelis as the descendents of apes and pigs. do you think that's a good foreign policy, leslie marshall? >> i don't think it's a good foreign policy to pretty much be-- is that a good policy. >> i'm answering, as to how we establish bord
to the fore what is conservatism, right? i mean there's a lot of argument about the government needs to stay out of my back yard and the party in terms of its national policies has embraced specifically those policies that are intrusive. whether that's a transvaginal ultrasound or deciding who gets to get married or who doesn't. sam you've written about the trajectory of the republican party are, we witnessing a moment where you may in fact as matt lewis says, conservatives have already lost the culture war. sure, some politicians with stapd on principle, but eventually politicians represent public opinion, then he maligns social conservative groups saying the so-called pro family groups are most lay joke. could this be beginning of the end for social conservatives sitting inside the republican party tent? >> it could be and what's so tough for them to deal with. i think everybody here knows, for 20 years, when republicans dominated politics, from 1968 to 1988, they don't realize that's when it ended. it was social issues that got them there. i've had two names for you. barry goldwater, who
. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha
. overseas, a the love federal government, legal questions. she was fbled by republicans for two and a half years. the president spoke out on that amidst all the other busy stuff he was doing on foreign policy this week. and he said even after nearly two and a half years, a minority of senators continued to block a simple up or down vote on her nomination. the d.c. circuit has more vacancies than any other appeals court. yet we know this doesn't get a lot of attention. do you think there is any. >> to put more pressure on this do nothing congress? >> it is unlikely she will come back up. what is happening here is that this is part of the conservative cause on judicial nominations. they're made about what happened during the bush years when democrats blocked a landful of very conservative judicial nominees. in some respects, this might be payback. what could obama do? he can try another couple of judicial nominations. the bottom line is he needs to clear these judicial nominations with at least a handful of republicans. otherwise if they're too liberal, they will get filibustered. >> thank y
government has used chemical weapons on its own people near the city of oleppo. listen to this. >> i have a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used. we need that final verification. we need to step up in the world community to prevent a humanitarian disaster. >> we're tapping into the global resources of cnn this morning to bring you the most complete coverage of the developing story. we have a reporter in jerusalem. ivan watson is in jordan and chris lawrence is live at the pentagon. sarah, how did the developments in syria affect the president's agenda on this trip? >> reporter: well, not much. this has been a major concern already for both the obama administration and netanyahu's administration. we do know according to a senior israeli official that i spoke with on condition of anonymity that this issue of the united states being asked to strike syria if certain things such as some of their weapons, missiles in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. tha
in the in the israeli government. today was an opportunity to benefit from the president's perspective on a whole range of topics. from the historic changes taking place across the region nuclear perils of iran and perils of peace between the israelis and the palestinians and the promise of our digital age and i should note one of the advantages of talking to president per rest is, not only does he have astonishing vision but he is also a pretty practical-minded politician and consistently has good advice in terms of how we can approach many of these problems. i reaffirmed to president peres as i will throughout my visit that in this work the state of israel will have no greater friend than the united states and the work we do in our time will make it more likely that the children that we saw today alongside children from throughout the region have the opportunity for security and peace and prosperity. you know this obligation to future generations i think was well-symbolized by the tree planting that we started our meeting with. you know the talmud recounts the story of honig the miracle worker who sa
government. and is somewhat weakened after a tough re-election fight. so from the white house perspective, he comes, the president comes here at a pretty good time to try to reach out to the israeli people. try to let them believe that he really does care about israel. that he has their back. they've been very much supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he
be a mushroom cloud. and that's not true. there was relationship between the iraqi government and the people who attacked us on 9/11. and yet, there's the republican presidential nominee, the last one to run, saying actually the iraq war was a war of liberation. at the republican convention this year, when they picked that nominee, the speech was given by the national security adviser during the iraq war, the one who said the smoking gun would be a mushroom cloud, who describe that war in her speech that night at the convention as a hard hard decision to keep us from being attacked again. ten years later it is hard to come to terms with the fact we went to war based on something the president told us that was not true. there is nothing that can bring back the more than 4400 american troops who died in that war, the more than 30,000 american troops wounded will not be made whole. we cannot bring them back. we cannot heal their injuries retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't
authorities could appeal to the u.s. government for her extradition. if the acquittal is upheld, it's case over. a native of the ivory coast who was raised is serving a 16-year prison term for kercher's murder. >> ben wedeman joins us live from rome. curious what the prosecution's argument is for wanting to do this, to retry her. >> well, the prosecution objected to the whole verdict of the appellate court in 2011. their argument is they found dna evidence from amanda knox on the alleged murder weapon, a kitchen knife. however, the defense argued that there was no dna from either amanda knox or raffaele, her former boyfriend, in the room where meredith's body was found. at this point we understand the defense is continuing to present their case inside the italian supreme court behind me. but we're also hearing from some lawyers that this hearing is taking much longer than was expected. some are suggesting we may not hear whether the court will uphold the acquittal until possibly tomorrow. >> ben, what about amanda knox? we know she's not in italy during the hearing. but have we heard anyth

and democratic state if things don't change. and he urged young israelis to pressure their government because he said politicians do not take risks unless there is public pressure for change. that was his key message. >> one thing that struck a lot of folks, the president's different stance and tone in regards to this trip. let's listen to remarks that president obama made in cairo in 2009 compared to remark he is gave in ramallah on thursday. take a look. >> this construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. it is time for these settlements to stop. how do we get a sovereignty for the palestinian people and assure security for the israeli people? that's not to say settlements are not important t is to say that if we some those two problems, the settlement problem will be solved. >> bill schneider that is a significant reversal what is behind that? >> he wants to get the peace talks started, the palestinians have essentially echoed the american position, which is they won't go to the table unless the settlement -- another moratorium on settlements, in which c

of a government spending bill. the house has passed that bill. the senate is expected to follow suit. perhaps as early as tomorrow. walk us through the thinking here. what is the thinking? >> well, the thinking is that one of the things that attracts people to use in the use postal service is that they have had good service. the concern is if you begin to erode the qual of the service, you will see a downward spiral. they will be able to less to compete as a result of that. what we should do is change some of the requirements we've imposed that aren't imposed on any other entity. public or private entity. for example, we require that they prefund 75 years of their health care. there's no private sector company that is required to do that. and no other part of the u.s. government is doing that. they would actually have been in surplus last year. this is postal service. had it not been for that requirement that only they pay. so there are things we can do to give them more flexibility without it being the flexibility to reduce needed services. again, these are choices we'll have to decide as we
in the state, colorado officials have responded by increasing security for other top government officials in the state. they have also increased security at the governor's mansion. this is happening in colorado at an already heightened time. the colorado legislature has been debating and passing gun reform legislation and that debate has been unusually contentious. they have pledged on the floor of the senate that they will disobey them. they will disobey the state's new laws. democratic lawmakers have received threats for their support of gun reform. criminal charges have been brought against people for making death threats against pro gun legislators. the sheriff in el paso county, which is where tom clements was killed, his office is the one in charge of the investigation, the sheriff is one of the sheriffs who has been highly critical of the gun legislation. so all of that pre-existing tension and those threats and that political battle on a day when a member of his cabinet was murdered by means of a gun, the governor in colorado today did not reschedule. he went ahead and signed thos
into the employ of cost-cutting hospitals, gives government the authority to determine services that will and will not be covered, has a board independent of congress that can cut payments for care and allows the secretary of health and human services to force all health plans to eliminate any doctor that doesn't practice medicine the government's way. the history of government-run health care systems around the world is a history of denial, delay and sadly, even death. anderson, i notice that she responded not long after the democratic campaign committee which is in charge of getting rid of republicans, of defeating them in elections, put out a press release blasting her, saying she would rather be in washington as a right wing celebrity than solving problems back in minnesota for minnesota's middle class. remember, she got a scare back in november. her election, her congressional election was closer than she expected and democrats are hoping to beat her this time. >> we certainly appreciate the response. it doesn't seem to back up the claim, though, that this health care will
having gauge bibi's new government as much as he needs to. you saw him say additional settlement activity be counterproductive and the right to sovereignty. i thought it was an important speech and established you can do peace through security as well as security through peace. >> it's interesting that a part of the speech, not one of the speeches that he has given within the last day, is he appears to be going a bit over the head of bibi and on directly to the israel people. >> it was an kind of awkward statement that bibi had to put out after the fact and didn't address the substance of what the president said but said we agree the peace process needs to be restarted and it needs to move forward. >> you could hear the classic tones of obama and empathizing with their opponent we are one people and like a red/blue speech for the middle east. >>> we move now to syria where the civil war there is only intensifying. a devastating bomb blast tore through a mosque in the capital yesterday and killing at least 42 people. among then one of the country's top clerics and supporter of the regime.
. he assisted them on numerous occasions. >> for over a decade the u.s. government spent more than a half a million dollars trying to deport him but have had no success. with nearly 400,000 people waiting for u.s. citizenship in november 2012 he received political asylum for the third time. >> it's a slap in the face to americans especially the victims of 911 and the families. >> it is personal for jim bush and retired special agent. >> 3,000 people were murdered. he played a very small part but he was part of the conspiracy. >> from the beginning he wouldn't give up anything. nothing about him fit. we knew it. we knew in our gut there was something wrong. >> chazeh arrived in july 2, '00 from saudi arabia. >> he settled into patterson new jersey. >> patterson, new jersey where 7 of the hijackers passed through before the 9-11 attacks. >> patterson is the launching pad for the plot. >> it is the only place we can connect -- we can't put them all together in one time or one meeting place because they blended into the community. >> it is here that he met up with another key facilitat
their vision for how you should fund the government. we're still waiting on president obama to release his own budget which will have potentially a competing vision. and adam is exactly right, it's just a matter of inches going forward and the big dernifferen on whether you want to boost investments over the long term or whether it's about cutting spending, these are big questions that lawmakers are facing. i would get in a room with a handful of guys, all men, and they would try to come to table with a deal. that's not how it works in washington. >> should it be at least a starting point? >> well, i think that they usually come together when they actually really need to to prevent something disastrous from happening to the budget or the economy. this is something that will come up again with the debt ceiling fight this summer. but if you look at what the senate just passed, this is as christina said, they want to raise taxes. >> guys, let's switch to gun control here. christina, there's mention of the push for the gun control measures. a new gun control law was signed into law described as to
to your government and said, we want a new israel, different israel. don, we could talk an hour about the obstacles of peace, but nudge your side to move forward, hopefully young palestinians will nudge their side. might say the president trying a new grassroots approach here in israel. >> i want you to listen to this, john, again. he spoke of a meeting he had with palestinian youth. >> talking to them, they weren't that different from my daughters. they weren't that different from your daughters. or sons. i honestly believe that if any israeli parent sat down with those kids, they'd say, i want these kids to succeed. i want them to prosper. i want them to have opportunities. >> john king, that's all well and good, lovely words, but let's talk about actions, specifically this. iraq has fired at israel today during the president's visit. fired, in fact, from gaza, whose palestinian leaders refuse to accept israel's right to exist. despite the applause the president got, his new offensive, as you said, new approach is use offensive. a lot of israelis will say this is our reality, correc
was a tribute to your extraordinary life, in which you held virtually every position in the israeli government. so today was another opportunity for me to benefit from the president's perspective on a whole range of topics, from the historic changes that are taking place across the region, to the perils of a nuclear-armed iran, to the imperatives of peace between israelis and palestinians, to the promise of our digital age. and i should note that one of the advantages of talking to president peres is not only does he have astonishing vision, but he's also a pretty practical minded politician. and consistently has good advice in terms of how we can approach many of these problems. i reaffirmed to president peres, as i will throughout my visit, that in this work, the state of israel will have no greater friend than the united states. and the work we do in our time will make it more likely that the children that we saw today, alongside children from throughout the region, have the opportunity for security and peace and prosperity. you know, this obligation to future generations, i think, was well
subdivisions. and the israeli government is debating whether to have the green light for a major new settlement on a parcel called e-1. and president obama did not mention settlements. there are a couple opportunities today where he could have turned to his counterpart and said you must stop. he has said that in the past. i'm sure it came up in the private conversation. but the president decided not to pick a public fight with the prime minister. but that is one of the huge obstacles to getting the palestinians back to the bargaining table. >> right. senator mitchell, you heard what john said there. how crucial is this going to be, this part of the debate? >> yeah. it's a very important part of it. let's be clear. every american president since israel was created has opposed israeli settlement construction. democrat and republican alike. no president has ever supported continued expansion of settlements. at the same time, we in israel are close friends and allies. we don't agree on every issue. and that's one on which we disagree. i think john is correct. i'm certain the president has raised it
17 years ago that says the federal government won't recognize any same-sex marriages even in the states where it's legal. the federal government says it has to have its own definition of marriage. the opponents say that doesn't make any sense constitutionally, either. >> prop 8, about the right to get married. d.o.m.a. about federal benefits when married. >> exactly. >> interrelated, but not the same issue. >> yes, because even if the supreme court says that prop 8 is struck down, that doesn't require any state to permit same-sex marriage. it will still be up to the states one way or the other. the only question in the doma case is whether the federal government will extend about 1,000 benefits, just like it would to opposite-sex couples, to gay couple who is get married. >> busy week, thank you. >>> the issue of same-sex marriage is among the most contentious facing the country. with both sides claiming they have moral and legal grounds to make their respective arguments. how the debate comes out could reshape how the country defines marriage for generations to come. >> e
